New online Pilot Information Center launches

Platform replaces, enhances AOPA Hangar

Ask just about any aviation-related question, and we will have an answer and resources for you. Now, you can get those answers easily through our online Pilot Information Center, an online question-and-answer platform that replaces the AOPA Hangar discussion area.

The Pilot Information Center keeps everything from the AOPA Hangar—dashboard, members area, groups, events, and marketplace—and it enhances the discussion area. AOPA Hangar users can use their existing login. Members who haven’t used the platform can log in to the Pilot Information Center with their username and password.

The question-and-answer discussion area is similar to Quora (a popular online platform for people to ask questions and share insights and knowledge) and will allow you to submit your own questions or browse popular categories of questions from other pilots and see the answers and resources that AOPA’s experts provided.

It’s another avenue for you to connect directly with AOPA on a personal level. You’ll interact with the experienced staff in our Pilot Information Center—the folks you currently call, chat with online, or email—as well as other AOPA subject matter experts and editors.

You will also be able to connect with other pilots by contributing answers and resources, and voting questions and answers up and down based on how much the information helped you.

Popular discussion categories focus on flight training, aircraft and equipment, legal and insurance, medical, ratings and certificates, drones, and air safety, among other topics.

“We are happy to announce our transition from the AOPA Hangar to the Pilot Information Center to better serve you—our pilot community,” said Tom Zecha, AOPA senior manager of the Pilot Information Center. “We invite you to ask questions, contribute answers, earn badges, and join our growing pilot community online.”
